The wine

Mas de Mancuso is the personal project of Jorge Navascues, but this time without the collaboration of Carlos San Pedro (oenologist at Pujanza-Rioja). The origin of the grapes has also changed, as now they are collected from old Grenache vineyards in Almonacid de la Sierra. This small town in the Cariñena appellation is at an altitude of 700 metres and has rocky soils of clay and slate. The wine ferments in 1,500 litre stainless steel tanks using native yeasts with manual punch-down, or pigeage, and without remontage. The extraction is gently carried out and stood to age in used French oak barrels. This wine has an incredible nose, fragrant with flowers, juicy yet vibrant, lively and extremely fresh. On the palate, we taste a young wine with fine tannins and an excellent balance which ensures it ages well in the bottle.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

I was looking forward to the 2018 Mas de Mancuso Garnacha, from one of the finest vintages in the region in recent times. It comes from a vineyard in the village of Almonacid, an old plot at 670 meters in altitude surrounded by forest. It's a mountain vineyard protected by the warm winds, a cool place with stone, clay and marl soils. This 2018 is perfumed and floral, expressive, open and quite different from the 2017, balanced and with very good depth. It fermented with 50% full clusters that were foot trodden and matured in used 500-liter oak barrels and later in concrete. It's medium-bodied and elegant, with great finesse, a lot more refined and elegant than the previous vintage. It has tension, light and energy. 3,500 bottles were filled in March 2021.

Mas de Mancuso

Mas de Mancuso

Viñedos de Mancuso started up in the year 2000 under the guidance of the Navascués family and Carlos San Pedro, oenologist at Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza, with the aim of recovering old Garnacha vines, some of which are over a century old and offering limited production. They carry out minimum intervention oenology with the intention of preserving the Garnacha’s original excellent qualities. They have 9 hectares in the Jarque de Moncayo district, at an...
